If you haven’t figured it out yet, I am competing in the CrossFit Open Games. Most everyone affiliated with a local CrossFit box is doing the same. Below you will find the leaderboard, filtered by Alabama Women Masters category in the CrossFit Open Games Leaderboard.
This year, it is a five-week competition for RX and Scaled versions for men and women of all ages, including teens.
There is one WOD (workout of the day) per week that is announced on Thursday night. They number the WODS as such 16.1; 16.2; 16.3; 16.4; 16.5 and we’ve just completed workout 16.4
I’ve done all of my WODs in the Scaled category and I have no shame in it. When I signed up this year, I knew I was out of shape and needed more work.
So why did I sign up?
I signed up for a few reasons:
- Because it’s fun
- It is a good measuring base
- For the competitive me
- For bragging rights
- For the tee-shirt
- To help cheer on others
- To be a part of a fantastic community
- To learn something
I’ve participated in CrossFit Open Games in the past, twice. Then I left CrossFit for a little while and became lazy, hence the being out of shape upon my return to CrossFit this year.
It’s been hard and humbling but it also builds character. I am back at “just show up and do the work” kind of attitude. I have been Periscoping my post WODs though so if you want to follow along you can tune-in most mornings at 0700. Look me up on Periscope @MoxieBeautiful.
The box I attend is Jones Valley CrossFit where my trainers/coaches are Wes Wyatt and Tracey Rauer. They’ve been great. All of the CrossFit coaches/trainers I’ve encountered have been fantastically supportive and I’ve learned so much from all of them. I will never leave CrossFit again.
